  • Best companion for presentation: a full-featured document manager, file viewer, web browser and whiteboard with VGA-out to external projector or LCD monitor. Perfect if you want to show presentation materials stored on local folders of your iPad or on Internet or private web sites. With multi-tab support, you can switch among screens with web content, PDF files, spreadsheets and photos/image files all within this app easily during a presentation. This app supports to use the iPhone app '2Screens Remote' (sold separately) as a Bluetooth remote control for page switching. So you are not required to always sit beside the iPad to control screen display during a presentation! You can mark on a whiteboard/chalkboard tab, or use the current slide as the background. You can even take screenshots of the annotations and save for future use.

Web users, with their diminishing attention spans, are inexorably drawn to these shiny, brightly coloured messages with small, relevant, clearly-displayed nuggets of information. They’re straight to the point, usually factually interesting and often give you a wake-up call as to what those statistics really mean.
